Week beginning 28-11-22
Our class worship this week focused on Advent. We learned about the Advent wreath and why the colour purple is important. We thought of ways in which we can prepare ourselves for Christmas, the birthday of Jesus.
We have been mark making in the sand, choosing our favourite reading books and having adventures in the woods.

We have been playing with our new "small world" toys - a garage and a fire station. We have made up lots of stories - we have fantastic imaginations! We know that if there is a fire and we need a fire engine we must phone 999.
It was very muddy in the woods this week, but it didn't stop us having fun. Afternoon Nursery collected green foliage to make the school Advent Wreath ready for Advent next week.
Week beginning 14th November 2022
We have had an interesting week this week. We started making Christmas decorations and we really enjoy arts and crafts. We have been working on the number 3. We have been counting all different things to do with the number and we have been practising writing the number 3. On Thursday we had PE with Miss Westgarth and we have been doing gymnastics. We have learnt lots of different shapes that we can make with our body such as a tuck, a pike and a straddle. In Welsh we have been learning about the weather and we have been singing the song “Sut mae’r tywydd heddiw?” We painted pictures of the different weather and we read the book Y Tywydd.
It is World Nursery Rhyme week so we have been singing lots of nursery rhymes.
Week beginning 7/11/22
It was lovely to see everybody after the half term break. We experimented with paint, sticks and glitter to create firework pictures and we have been using our fingers to tear paper to make mosaics. On Friday, the theme of our class worship was “remembrance” and we said special prayers remembering those that have died. In the woods we hunted to see who could find the longest stick, and we found lots of wood lice hiding under stones.
Our first half term was very busy. The children have settled in well and are beginning to make new friends. They are becoming familiar with the classroom setting and are making choices about the activities they want to engage with. We have enjoyed cooking, creative activities, songs and rhymes, maths songs and games and exploring the outdoor environment.
